Release of the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)


The release of the final EIR initiates a 30-day review period pursuant to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA).. The purpose of this review is to confirm that the EIR was appropriately revised in response to the MEPA scope, which consolidates state agencies’ comments on the Draft EIR.


Please note that this notice and review period is independent from the federal notice and publication process for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The federal process will be initiated by the publication of National Park Service and Environmental Protection Agency Federal Register Notices. The latter notice will initiate a 30-day no action period. Following this no action period, a federal Record of Decision may be signed.
